Join the online community forum
Webmasters from across the University of Ottawa are invited to join the rest of the University's web community on Microsoft Teams. Microsoft Teams is a chat tool that will allow you, other webmasters, members from the Directorate of Communications as well as the Web Services team to interact with each other instantaneously.
Why join us on Microsoft Teams?
There are currently more than 45 members from across the University's web community participating on Microsoft Teams. If anyone has questions or needs advice, they can get timely answers and receive useful information from people with different views and experiences. Need to get in touch with the Web team over a silly question that you don't want to open an entire ticket for? Just contact them on Microsoft Teams. Have issues with the latest release? Chances are someone else may have reported it or the Web team may have mentioned it in the webmaster channel.
How to access Microsoft Teams?
You can download the Microsoft Teams application for desktop, for iOS or for Android on the following website: Get Microsoft Teams on all your devices. Once it is installed:
- users who were previously on HipChat should already have been migrated to the new Webmasters chat channel and can therefore jump in the discussions right away.
- all new users will have to open a ticket with the Service Desk to request access to the "Webmasters" channel in Microsoft Teams.
